Mang Receives NSM Junior Faculty Award for Excellence in Research

Andreas Mang in the Department of Mathematics is the 2022 recipient of NSM’s Junior Faculty Award for Excellence in Research. The award recognizes faculty at the rank of assistant professor who have demonstrated great potential in research and/or scholarship by virtue of the exceptional quality of their contributions.

Each NSM department nominates an eligible faculty member for the honor. The award, given each year, comes with a monetary award, plaque, and a nameplate placed on a plaque in the Dean’s Office. The award recipient is also recognized during NSM Commencement.

Mang’s research lies at the interface of mathematics and computational science. His work seeks to gain knowledge from data to promote scientific discovery, decision-making, and data-informed predictions, where the predominant applications are in the field of medical imaging.

His methods rigorously follow mathematical and physical principles that are deployed in modern computing architectures to provide rapid and reliable numerical solutions to big data problems.

Mang recently received an NSF CAREER Award for this project, “Scalable Algorithms for Nonlinear, Large-Scale Inverse Problems Governed by Dynamical Systems.”

The Junior Faculty Award for Excellence in Research review process relies on the hard work of an ad hoc committee comprised of one faculty member from each NSM department selected by the respective department chairs. The committee makes a recommendation for award to the Dean, who makes the final decision.
